Voss Organics can be found each Saturday at North Carroll Street on the Capitol Square, where Mark offers seedlings for heirloom tomatoes in the spring and fresh-picked tomatoes in the summer. He also sells potted herbs and flowers.
The Daily Page: What's the one item you wish you grew but can't?
Voss: Mangoes, I wish I could figure out how to grow mangoes in Wisconsin.
What plants do you recommend most to customers?
1. Nyagous Tomato. It has a great smoky flavor, and I would consider it the "filet mignon" of tomatoes.
2. Jaune Flammee, a very early, orange tomato from France that keeps on producing all season.
What would you attribute the success of your plants to?
My special handmade soil mix, which is vitamin-rich and helps produce thick, healthy plants. Also, I play them classical music, with some occasional tropical rhythms.
